If left untended, hands have been known to flee arms and take up residence with Addams families. Keep hands from autonomy with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a signature mani-pedi (a $65 value) at Cityplace Fitness in Uptown. Cityplace's dark woods and warm lighting creates a serene atmosphere for pampery spa treatments. A relaxing soak primes hands and feet before nail re-sculpting, a cleansing salt scrub, and a hot-stone massage, which kneads and warms muscles into microwaved cotton candy-like suppleness. Cityplace's extremity pampers then dip hands and feet into warming paraffin wax, which protects against dryness and being identified by local authorities. Nails are finished off with polish.
Larry North has spent his 25-year career inspiring people to change their bodies and their lives through his infomercials, talk-radio show, television appearances, three books, and, most notably, his six Larry North fitness centers. "Success," North believes, "is not about how many gyms or how many members we have. It is about successful clients who lose weight and keep it off..." Adhering to this mantra, he wants to make sure that every member has access to the best resources and tools to achieve their goals. He sees to it that all of his spacious and sleek gyms boast a high trainer-to-member ratio and are jam-packed with weights, strength machines, and cardio equipment from industry-leading manufacturers.
All North's spacious and chic facilities offer a bevy of group classes that include kickboxing, yoga, Pilates, dance-based fitness sessions, and their signature 30-minute abs workouts.
